Carnival Loft International challenge hot spot 1 – 17 June 2019

What a strange race this turned out to be on Monday, the pigeons were liberated at 07h30 by Paul de Jesus who drove them down to Winburg on Sunday afternoon already. The weather the morning was all clear with not much wind to speak off. The braai fires were lit at about 9am and the first guests arrived soon after and as we stood around the fire chatting about the races we had on Saturday my prediction for time of arrival was between 10h15 and 10h20 as there was only a light wind blowing and the pigeons have been to Winburg already. As we stood chatting we saw the shadow of the first kit from the north (completely opposite race direction) arrive, the 22 pigeons did not mess around and made half a turn around the loft and then dropped down and walked in over the clocking system.

First to clock was the pigeon from Golden Thread Stud from Cape Town unfortunately this is a non-entered pigeon and so cannot win the R10 000 prize that is up for grabs on the hot spots for the 1st paid entry to clock. This means that the 2nd pigeon to clock and the 1st paid entry who wins the prize money belongs to Team Heerman, Holland & Gilbert well done to you; this pigeon is currently one of the best in this team having flown a 1st as well as a 2nd already.

The rest of the pigeons arrived in small groups but from various directions and very few of them from the line of flight, luckily they have a bit of time off this week to regain strength and stamina and to get ready for the 2nd hot spot from about 255km next week Friday 28 June 2019. We will have the Kroonstad training flight that counts for the grand averages on Friday morning 21 June 2019 just to keep them in shape!

To all the fanciers who had a pigeon in the first drop well done!!!

The grand averages after 5 trainings are:
